Hey, look!  Alyse at At Home with Books gave me an award!

The Lemonade Award is for blogs that show gratitude or a great attitude.  This is a terrific compliment, as Gratitude is a big thing in my world.  It’s sort of my religion, actually.  When we eat dinner at my house, everyone holds hands and says something we’re grateful for.  Awkward, I know!  So if you come over you’d better be ready.

Anyway, enough about me.  Now it is time to spread the award to other blogs.  I nominate:

“Revenge of the Spellmans”

Spellmans!  Reading one of Lisa Lutz’s books is a little like Christmas.  You’re filled with excitement and anticipation, it finally arrives, then as quick as a wink it’s over and you have to wait until next year.

Product Details

Revenge of the Spellmans is the third in the series, following the adventures of Isabel Spellman and her family’s detective agency.  These are some of the funniest books ever written.  I seriously can’t praise them enough.  If one came out every five days, I would read it.  My only consolation over the sad fact that we have to wait longer than that is that it looks like the adventures will continue, hopefully for many more volumes.

Right, so, I know you want to get started right away.  The Spellman Files is the first volume.  Read it now so when the inevitable movie or TV series comes out, you can say you saw it coming.
